Hunter Street Mall development 'world class': Tim Owen

NEWCASTLE MP Tim Owen has revealed details about the revived Hunter Street Mall redevelopment ahead of an eagerly anticipated presentation to the Urban Development Institute of Australia today.

Mr Owen spoke to the Newcastle Herald this morning and said development partners Landcom and GPT were undertaking risk mitigation works before tabling designs.

He said the developers would attempt to incorporate existing heritage facades in the project.

‘‘It really is going to be a world class development’’, he said.

The development is expected to mix residential, niche retail and niche commercial spaces.
